Cue the Pointer Sisters- "I'm so Excited"

OK, it doesn't take much......
I've just got to share this with y'all.  I started with this piece of foam core board which I got half off- so we're talking $1.


TA DAA- Copic storage for $1.


You can see the old cases I have been using.  They're nice but they can be a little aggravating.  I wanted something that would store the markers horizontally and be easy to slide them in & out of.  It may be a little ridiculous to put such nice (expensive) markers in such a cheap unit, but hey, it doesn't bother me!  I've made another one to go beside this one> OK, so technically it cost me $2.  Anyway, I think I'm going to cut a long piece to use as a shelf across the top of the two of them.  That's just a spare piece of board laid on top of this one.


I saw this idea on someone's blog.  I can not for the life of me remember the blog (She wasn't someone I follow, I just know her name was Karen, sorry!)    Her's was a lot nicer than mine, but these will do me just fine.  I'm not sure but she may have put a back on her's, I didn't, but that's something I can always go back and do later if I want to.  Now if only I had a lot more Copics to put in them!!!  Please let me know if you make one for yourself, I'd love to see it.

  4. This is so awesome, Tami! What a bargain! I don't have any Copics so I need to figure out what I could use one of these creative storage units for! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say hi at the Getting Cricky Ustream. That feed was flying by so fast sometimes, I could not keep up! :)

  8. I just got the Cindy Loo cartridge and haven't use it yet. Do you have this cartridge and if so what is your favorite part on it. It looks like it has some great stuff on it.
